Hi just a brief introduction of myself. I live and work in Australia and am building a Dutch layout. In the old Utrecht central station they had around 6 sets of these. It allowed short EMU's to stop at say platforms 4a and 4b. Yet a long train would be just at platform 4 taking up both a and b sections. Short trains could pass each other through the centre.

I want to build this in HO 16.5 mm with a track distance of 51-54 mm and in code 83 FB.

I am familair with CAD and find this program very impressive. I have built over the years a number off ordinary points but not an assembly like this.

I would prefer symmetrical 3-way points (frogs at the same alignment), but non-symmetrical ones will be fine too.

Is there someone out there who has built something like this and could share the template please?

Regards

Cornelis

Welcome to Templot Club. :)

That's a common operating practice at UK stations too. I think you mean a "scissors" crossover?

If you post a track plan or photo, we can be sure we are talking about the same thing.

regards,

Martin.

Hi Martin
Yes that is more or less it. However I like to have a triple sciccor crossover. I had already uploaded a picture (see gallery) but will do it again and try inserting this time.
Regards

Cornelis

Never thought about it before but how do P*c* get the frogs on a 3-way aligned? Is the left-hand road sharper than the right-hand road?

It depends on the formation.
With a Tandem Turnout, the two base turnouts will need to be somewhat different in order for the two far crossings to have their nose on the same A timber and allow the first set of switches enough distance to clear the second set of switches. There will be a limited number of combinations where this is possible.
For a Three Throw Turnout, where the switch blades coincide, both base Turnouts will be the same just of opposite hand.
Regards.
Tony.
